homemade pasta tips needed

I purchased the roller/cutter set for my KA mixer. Last nite was my first attempt ever at making pasta, and i used recipe in KA booklet. The dough was stiff and crumbly, it took a lot of rolling w/ regular pin to get it thru KA rollers. I did kneading in mixer first. Tips on dough handling in booklet were not great.. I did add extra water and oil. In the end, it came out OK, we had linguini with sauce and meatballs. Firm, not mushy texture. Rolling and cutting was a little dry and crumbly still.
I am looking for tips on the dough handling, texture, recipe, etc. I was planning to make homemade ravioli for a dinner party next Saturday! I was thinking smoked trout incorporated into the filling....
